After four years, Himesh Reshammiya is making a comeback as a music director and that too with Vipul Shah’s sequel to Namastey London. Interestingly, the original was the last film that Reshammiya worked on, in 2007, before his decision to compose music exclusively for the movies he was cast in.
Our source told us, “Himesh was a on a roll as a music director and then as a singer. However, when he decided to compose music only for the films he was in, the entire industry was shocked. Now finally, after almost four years, he is back.
Namastey London was his last film for an outside banner as a music director. He will work on Namstey London 2 with Vipul and Akshay. Though Himesh still hasn’t decided whether he’ll be singing for the film, he already has a repertoire of around 500 tunes.”
The source added, “The music will be under Himesh’s recently formed music banner HR Musik. While Himesh might have abandoned his decision to do music exclusively for films he was cast in, he has decided that he will only do films under his own music company.
Himesh Reshammiya had been an extremely successful music director in the last decade with big musical hits like Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge (2000). Humraaz (2002), Tere Naam (2003), Aitraaz (2004), Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya (2005) and More >

And he could not have got a better launch vehicle than the Prashant Chadha (Aap Ka Suroor) directed espionage suspense thriller to make his debut.
The first look of the film in which Sachiin plays an informant who has to go undercover beyond enemy lines to save the nation from the threat of biological warfare, is already a topic of discussion. A trade analyst said, “Those who have seen the first cut of Azaan, have been raving about it, they say it’s slick, fast-paced, racy, and audiences are going to be introduced to a different kind of cinema.”
Sachiin believes action and suspense films are truly the flavour of the season. He’s worked hard on himself for this role. “The film is fast-paced so I had to work on my stamina and physique… since there are a lot of action scenes and at other times we’d be shooting in freezing temperatures. I trained extensively in Krav Maga and Kalaripayattu (ancient Israeli and Indian martial arts) and the results are for all to see,” the More >
